Individuals can get sexually transmitted infections (STIs) through vaginal intercourse, anal sex, and oral sex. Unprotected sex can cause the transmission of these infections and the most common symptoms are itching and burning around the genitals. The clinic provides testing, screening, treatments, and education regarding STIs.
Through blood tests, urine samples, and fluid samples, the clinic can test the cause and identify possible coinfections that the patient may have. Screening, or testing STIs among those without symptoms is also available for everyone, and the clinic encourages that anyone who may have had unprotected sex be screened for the disease for prevention and precautionary measures. Treatments that the clinic provide are antibiotics and antiviral drugs. Usually, most STIs can be treated with antibiotics while some HIV can be treated through antiviral drugs. The clinic’s patient education regarding STIs include symptoms, management, suggestions for safe sex, preventive treatment and partner notifications.
